Are men who are sociopathic and absolutely hate women more likely to sexually abuse them?

Reply Sun 7 Apr, 2013 09:07 pm
I'm asking this because I believe I may have been sexually abused as a child because I have a lot of the "signs" including the fact that I cannot remember but a few things under age nine. My brother is sociopathic and hates women, like really hates them.. He is 10 years older than me if that's anything. I don't know much about my childhood (I'm 16) other than the fact that it wasn't good. I know very little but what I know is bad. My brother has always been extremely horrible towards my family and I just need to work through my problems and I need any direction I can get. I am not saying anything to anyone until I figure things out but I need an answer to my question, I guess the small portion of my backstory wasn't nesscessary but oh we'll, please help.

Well, it's certainly not impossible that he harmed you. And definitely that kind of mindset is going to incline someone toward all sorts of violent acts. The question is whether it was these specific acts, and whether they were directed toward you.

I realize that you are only sixteen, but it would help to speak with a therapist. I know that getting to that point is not easy when you are a minor, but I am sure that your parents are well aware of your brother's issues. You could frame it in terms of seeking help in coping with having such a brother. If that is too much, then ask to see your regular pediatrician. Complain of headaches if you must (I hate the idea of lying in this area, but I understand that you may be in a position where providing the whole truth to your folks will do more harm than good) and ask the doctor for a referral to a mental health specialist. At least to talk should help.

Best of luck to you.
